Thought we would share this little success story with you all. See how many dry eyes are in the room!

My Success Story - From Mylo's point of view

Hello everyone my name is Mylo and I am a 2yr old German Shepherd. I didn't have the best upbringing I started off as a loving pup full of joy, hope and loved my family unconditionally.

All was going great until my family decided to move me to a new home, my new family were a good family but I think they had problems understanding how big I was going to be and maybe what it takes to look after me, they trained me fairly well and I did my best to come back when they called, Ieven learned that doing the toilet outside was the right thing to do. You see I am a fast learner and can figure people out really well and as we all know being a large dog I needed lots of long walks and loads of love.

I don't know what happened next or what I had done wrong but we went for a walk one day and met awoman called Eileen I could hear lots of barking andwas very excited, the next thing I knew I had my own kennel space. Eileen looked after me in the kennel for just over a year and not a single person or family wanted to see me.

I was always the quietest in the kennel and when people visited I tried my best to be good.One rainy Sunday morning Eileen came to see me andtook me to get washed, I was wondering what wasgoing on but had this funny feeling in my heart, Eileen put me in a different kennel after my wash which I thought was strange, when I looked out I saw a familywalking across the grass towards the kennel with Eileen and Carolyn I jumped up both paws on the cage with excitement, they had come to see me, I got out to play in the field and chased my ball the family were so pleased to see me and they looked excited too.

Carolyn had asked the family if they wanted to take me out for a walk and they jumped at the chance, off we all went I felt great being walked outside the kennel with these new people and I was very excited but they were ok with that.When we got back to the kennel, Eileen and Carolyn had decided that I could go in the car with this family and they took me back to their home.

I have never looked back, I get long walks down the beach, the park,in the car, and they take me everywhere. I think I have finally realized that I am now in my forever home and my new family cannot stop cuddling and kissing me.A massive thank you to Eileen, Carolyn, and everyone else at German Shepherd Rescue for looking after me until my forever family finally came to collect me.

Stuart, Anne-Marie, Nicola, Alana would like to say amassive thank you to German Shepherd Rescue for the tireless work you all do and uniting us with Mylo who we think was waiting for us and was meant to be. Xx
